The procurement transformation webinar series.
- A trilogy of webinars about transformation of and innovation in procurement.
What impact will the coronavirus crisis have on the future and how can innovation and transformation help us to shape this future?
The Global Value Chains are ‘broken’ and it will take a while before they are restored. Every country has its own regulations for and means of compensating businesses. This will influence the market in the long term and will not create an equal, level playing field. How does this influence our Global Value Chains and how do we increase our independence and become a more flexible and digitally connected European sourcing and production network? We have developed a digital infrastructure which was desperately needed during this crisis. In the future there will be more pandemics and the transition we have started as a result of this one should continue. Innovation, transformation and digitalization are keywords for businesses and therefore also in procurement.
In the coming three webinars, we will share our perspective on the urgent need for transformation of and innovation in procurement.

Design thinking in Procurement.
Procurement has to do with wicked problems: tough and complex issues that are difficult to solve. And these complex issues require a new perspective. In this webinar, Guido Stompff will discuss the need for innovation within procurement and the use of the design thinking methodology, to solve these wicked problems.
The following will be discussed during this event:
• Change management
• Next generation procurement
• This webinar will be in English
As a procurement professional you regularly encounter them: tough and complex problems for which there is no ready-made solution. In an ever-changing world, issues like this need to progress faster and more innovative. Also when it comes to complex problems. And that requires an innovative view of the problem. But ingrained thinking patterns and bias ('that's how we always do it here') stand in the way of innovation and innovation. Design Thinking is a way of working that helps to solve organizational challenges faster and better.
